How SPF Creams Can Cause Pre-mature Aging And Skin Cancer Yet Help OR Deteriorate Acne Treatment and Acne Scars

 

Up to the early 1980's, sunscreens and sunblocks were religiously believed to be only for beach applications. The Australians have been the largest and most faithful users of sunscreens and sunblocks, and yet they have the world's highest skin cancer patients. See Skin Cancer images below:

 How UV-rays damage the skin

The epidermis, the outer-most layer of our skin, is no thicker than the normal writing paper. About 90% of the skin mass is collagen - a large protein that contributes to the skin form, function and strength. Collagen is the principal recipient of UV-induced skin damage. The UV-rays suppress collagen production by turning off the collagen-producing genes. Simultaneously, UV-rays activate collagen digestion by stimulating production of the destructive enzymes. Each occurrence will damage the skin with a micro rupture. Over the years, the micro-rupture will become macro, leading to premature wrinkled skin and hyper-pigmentation. For acne sufferers or those with acne scars, Dr. Pierre's Anti-UV Day Creams are excellent beneficial products to incorporate into your Acne Treatment Regimen as testified by many ex-acne sufferers.

Is walking under the shade and staying indoor safe?

In his early years, Dr. Pierre witnessed countless cases of premature-aging (UV-induced photo-aging) and hyper-pigmentation among his large customer base of helpless men and women. No Skin Care products in the market could address the problem of the day then. Day creams were made only to moisturize the skin. From his years of painstaking observation, Dr. Pierre discovered that the cumulative effect of the daily micro skin damage caused by indirect exposure to UV rays is as harmful. A few minutes walk under the shade outside, or staying indoors (with lots of natural lighting) is still unsafe. In our tropical climate, the UV-rays are intense. So long your eyes can see an object there are visible rays present, so as UV-rays, since UV-rays are directly beside the visible-rays in the light spectrum. So, there's no need to lie under the hot sun at the beach to get UV-induced skin damage. A small daily dose is enough to do harm over the years. For people undergoing treatment of acne or having acne scars, care must be taken to avoid over-exposure to UV rays.

The Revolutionary Dr. Pierre Herbal Cosmeceuticals 3-in-1 Sunscreen Day Cream

In 1983 Dr. Pierre researched and developed 4 versions of the first revolutionary sunscreen day creams with an SPF 8 (that is, ability to protect the skin 8 times longer than an unprotected skin). He incorporated 3 application functions in the cream - as Sunscreen, Makeup Foundation and as Moisturizing Day Cream! Used in the treatment of acne they lighten acne scars too!
